In Bedford-Stuyvesant, one of the most gentrifying neighborhoods in Brooklyn, a moody restaurant is attracting more and more people from all over town. Edoardo Mantelli, the owner of italian restaurant “Saraghina”, has constantly improved the quality and freshness of each ingredient used in his tavern over the years. Part of the seasonal food at the restaurant is grown on his farm near Kingston, Upstate NY, where his employees help out and get closer to the “slow-food” philosophy by learning the process of growing and preparing ingredients with their own hands.
